Event Overview:

The primary objective of this event is to foster insightful discussions among experts, practitioners, and decision-makers about the challenges surrounding the governance of the smallholder data ecosystem. We aim to draw lessons from past and current practices and chart a path towards establishing guiding principles for a more equitable smallholder farmer data ecosystem.

The event will commence with an opening speech by Mandla Nkomo, Work Package Lead & Chief Growth Officer at CGIAR Excellence in Agronomy (EIA) Initiative, providing valuable insights to set the stage. Subsequently, we are organising three interactive panel discussion sessions where attendees can share their expertise and opinions in a structured and collaborative manner. These sessions promise to be enlightening and inspiring, and your participation would enrich the dialogue.
